BEE Creative at Dunedin School of Art

Saturday, 27th April 2024 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

19 Riego Street, Dunedin

Screen-printing workshops for intermediate and high school students: 1pm-2pm & 2pm-3pm

Pam McKinlay from the Dunedin School of Art uses art workshops to give students a better understanding of native bees - what they look like, where they live and how they help us.

Many of the ngaro huruhuru/native bees species are so small we don’t even notice them. Find out from Dr Jenny Jandt, Otago University bee researcher, just how important native bees are and what we can do to protect them.

These workshops are a collaboration with Art+Science Project and University of Otago’s Jandt Lab on the importance of native bees as pollinators and protecting their nesting sites and habitats.

The maximum places for each session is 10, so if you book and cannot attend it is important you release the place for someone else.
